Read Bobie Ansah’s post below:

The police service about two weeks ago wrote to CMG requesting for a video I aired on my show concerning the land under discussions which we provided.

Now, I saw a missed call notification on my phone on the 10th of this month (Thursday) around 8am, and I called back out of courtesy, the respondent mentioned his name as Sup. Asare from the national crime office, and further directed me to go and see the cantoments police crime officer for some discussions, actually he sounded incoherent but I think it's trivial for me to dwell on it.

I didn't have the contact of the latter officer @ cantonments and asked Sup. Asare to furnish me the contact which he did and I still have his message on my phone as an evidence. Apparently I was out of town and was setting off back to Accra, however I did the needful and called the man called Mr Appeatu, we had a very fruitful discussions on the phone and concluded that we can meet on this coming Monday morning. So I psyched myself for a Monday meeting only for me to come face to face with such an arrest.

Thank you folks

Note: I have screenshot the message sent to me by Sup. Asare and will put it out @ the appropriate time.

Viva guys!

We grind!

I am just defusing the falsehood put out in the name of the police service.

Thank you
